Sweet Olive Revival was born out of a passion for vintage & antique treasures. I have many fond memories growing up scouring antique stores, flea markets and tag sales all over the country and that continued even as our family made a move to Europe. My parents have had a lifelong passion for antiques that they unwittingly passed on to my brother and me. My mom currently owns an antique shop and my dad is forever busy restoring a vintage car or two. As a kid, although I was too young to have a serious interest in collecting, I enjoyed hunting with my family & I certainly appreciated the places we visited and explored. Traveling throughout the U.S. and Europe as an adult I came to love & collect those vintage things that were at the heart of what made each place beautiful and unique.
I have always loved the American farmhouse. My mother was born and raised on a farm and many of my mothers family continue that tradition. The simplicity of the farmhouse life has always appealed to me and is held close to my heart. Although it was entirely about the functionality & the need of the things my grandmother used on her farm, who knew that these “things” would become collectible and considered decor! Many of these now vintage goods found on my grandmothers farm are similar to the vintage American, French and European farmhouse goods that fill my heart and home and will hopefully fill yours too.
